PAIRING WINES WITH YOUR FAVORITE CYCLONE’S DISHES

Everyone knows that nothing goes better with our made-from-scratch recipes than a jumbo margarita, but what if you’re in the mood for something a little different?

Our extensive wine list features reds, whites, and everything in between that can add another level of enjoyment to your meal. We’ve asked Chef Jason Gould for his recommendations on which wines pair well with some of our most popular items. Here’s what he had to say:

Jumbo Lump Crabmeat Nachos & La Cream Chardonnay

“The butteriness of the La Crema add a richness to this already opulent dish.”

 

Seafood Ceviche & Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc

“The crisp quality of this wine blends perfectly with fresh clean flavors of our Seafood Ceviche.”

 

Betsy’s Tamales & Layer Cake Pinot Noir

“The tart fruit notes of this pinot brings out the unique flavors of the ancho peppers within this dish”

 

Crawfish Enchiladas & Cupcake Prosecco

“You can’t go wrong with sweet bubbles and seafood.”

 

Brisket Tacos & Upper Cut Cabernet Sauvignon

“The rich fruity qualities of this cabernet pair well with the smokiness of the chipotle used in our signature spice mix.”

 

Wood–Fire Grilled Baby Back Ribs & The Dreaming Tree “Crush”

“The sweet tangy flavor of our house-made ancho honey barbecue sauce enhance the raspberry flavors of this wine.”

 

Enchiladas Anaya’s & Seven Falls Merlot

“The subtle flavors of cherry, cocoa, and herbs in this Merlot bring out the depth of character in this dish.”

 

Carne Asada a la Tampiqueña & Campo Viejo Tempranillo

“The earthy undertones of the tempranillo pair well with the spicy charbroiled skirt steak.”

 

Pollo Jalisco & Meiomi Pinot Noir

“This lush & fruity pinot balances the creamy smoky flavors of our Pollo Jalisco, sauteed in cilantro butter and topped with mushrooms and our special chipotle cream sauce.”
